How many more statements does it take to stop a genocide?

Over the past 4 days, more than 200 people have been killed by the Syrian regime’s and Russia’s indiscriminate airstrikes in Idlib and Ghouta. Tens of thousands of Syrian civilians have been displaced (again) from their homes. This time, they have nowhere left to go. Many of them don’t even have a tent to sleep under. The Syrian regime used chemical weapons against Idlib (again). The constant airstrikes are targeting schools, hospitals, and neighborhoods, setting buildings ablaze as people flee towards a non-existent safe haven.

  "Running from the hell of another warplane airstrike,  # WhiteHelmet   Saeed, grips the only thing that suddenly matters to him in this world, his baby boy Ibrahim. The latest victim of the ferocious strikes on  # Saqba   city in E.Ghouta."  – via Twitter

We are a humanitarian organization building a better future for Syria. But what future will be left from this relentlessly violent present?

We are tired of helplessly watching these horrific scenes every single day. Aren’t you? We are tired of making the same statements of outrage over and over for 7 years, while nothing is done to protect Syrian civilians right to live. Aren’t you tired of reading them?

How many more statements does it take to stop a genocide?

How many more statements does it take to stop the airstrikes?

How many more people have to die before outrage becomes meaningful action?

We don’t know the answer to these questions. All we can do is help Syrians in need. We do this work while we are outraged against the injustices waged against the Syrian people.

If you are as outraged as we are, take action today:

1. Read and share this statement.

2. Read and share these articles:
